"One Word” is a project designed to move you beyond the new year resolutions that we all make and break! The challenge is simple: lose the long list of changes you want to make this year and instead pick ONE WORD and stay focused on it for one year.

You will find clarity by taking all your big plans for life change and narrowing them down into a single focus. Just one word that centers on your character and creates a vision for the year.  In 2009 my word was Trust- my first experience really relying on God.  Using a 16x20 canvas, paint the background, add words that reflect your one word- persistence, precious, mighty, dare, nurture, simple, forever, always, journey, a work in progress, simplify, progress, the greatest love of all, determination, grow, experience, time, always, be brave, patience.

Marking moments in family life are important to chart the way the movement of the Spirit touches our children. I had the opportunity to visit the studio of Diane Marra and make this canvas Faith Art with one daughter as the gift to another daughter for a wedding shower.  We chose the word Covenant as a reminder of the promise of the Lord as the center of a Christ union in marriage. May it be a blessing to them to see this displayed in their new home and a testimony of the sanctity of their marriage promise.

This mixed media project used stamps, paint and chipboard as well as dimensional additions to bring life to the canvas. Thanks Diane for helping us to create this one of a kind gift! It is important to help families claim all family celebrations as sacred and visual reminders are wonderful place markers.
